Scarce Two-Gallon Stoneware Jar with Cobalt Woman Decoration, attributed to David Greenland Thompson, Morgantown, WV, circa 1860, cylindrical jar with tooled shoulder, tapered rim molding, and incised banding around midsection, decorated on the front with a brushed design of a woman holding a parasol, standing atop a sponged ground. Distinctive arched cobalt sponging above figure. Base inscribed twice with a number 2 in freehand cobalt. Cobalt stripe to bottom edge. This example features particularly crisp sponging, and the application of the ground with a sponge, as opposed to a brush, is an unusual treatment. A classic Morgantown figural design. Provenance: Descended in the family of legendary Ohio antiques dealer, Clark Garrett. Excellent condition with a minor chip to bottom edge, a tiny nick to rim, a small in-the-firing ping to front, and some light surface wear. H 11 1/2".
